Biography

Joseph was born in 1904. He passed away in 1987. His parents were Josephine (née Lynch) and Charles William Campbell.

Joseph Campbell was an American mythologist who worked in comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work covers many aspects of the human experience. Campbell's magnum opus is his book The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), in which he discusses his theory of the journey of the archetypal hero found in world mythologies.

Good friends with Ed Ricketts, who was a biologist called "Doc" in John Steinbeck's novels.
